What bike can you ride with a CBT?
Depending on your age, you will be limited to a motorcycle or scooter with a 50cc or 125cc engine. At 16-years-old you’ll be limited to the smaller 50cc capacity, as well a top speed of 30mph. 30mph doesn’t sound like much, but it’s more or less all you need for central London. Scooters are the most popular type of 50cc machines, due to their practicality and ease of use.The most popular choice of 50cc bikes are scooters, which provide great ease of use and practicality. You won’t have to worry about gears or a clutch - all you have to do is twist the throttle and pull the brake levers. Scooters usually offer some form of underseat storage, and although the capacity can differ between models and manufacturers, most will be able to fit a full face helmet under the seat.
50cc motorcycles are much less popular. Motorcycles usually offer a little more fun than scooters, but because all 50cc motorcycles are restricted to 30mph, you will spend a lot of time changing up and down the gears for little gain.
If you’re 17-years-old or above you’ll be able to ride bikes with a maximum capacity of 125cc and maximum power of 11kW. You won’t be limited to any particular top speed, so you’ll be able to keep up with traffic both in and out of the city. 125cc bikes are incredibly popular in cities, as they’re incredibly lightweight - which means they’re easy to handle - and they have enough power to make city riding fun and hassle-free.
